You start one. I'll be the guy who frisks everyone.
Some of us lead very monastic lives after a bad marriage !!
"Lady monks" are called "nuns" in Buddhism, also. See this discussion:
There are also Lutheran and Anglican female monks/nuns/friars, as well as Catholics.
I've also been looking to see if there is anything like what you're talking about. So far I haven't found anything. The only thing I can think of that matches that would be a retreat but I think those are only for a certain amount of time. If you find anything let would you be willing to let me know? Other wise starting one might not be so bad of an idea or at least a long-term retreat.
Non Denominational churches tend to Preach a Protestant form of the Gospel of the King James version. There is a tendency to be more Literal, than Philosophical, but leaning on the Theological side of the Mythology.
It is geared to teach the Bible and not profess the ideologies of any particular Doctrine.
They are more like a Baptist congregation, without the radical behavior.
Good lord, what for???????????
If you want to live a Godly, Chaste life then by all means do so. You don't need a monastary to do that in. You can pray about it. You can avoid getting involved with someone if that's your goal. You can do just about anything if you want to badly enough.
Besides, You may not find it to your liking, then you would need to deal with the emotional trauma of leaving the order.
i would bet there are
No, they won't allow women in a monastery. It's like the MCC.
I doubt you're missing anything except a lot of gay sex.
I think it's called a convent and Lucy is correct about the various denominations.
Exist as a single older female in an all married and younger church...there is plenty of solitude there, and then when you realize you are lonely~you can get involved and make a difference where you are.
I don't know of any, except for Catholic and Buddhist.
Now why would you wish to go and destroy your life in this way for? Why don't you just become a member of Sinead O' Connor's group.
I'm sure there are. Check with local non denominational churches- see what they offer.
